(I know I do!)
To say that this recent Mercury gone retrograde was awful would be an understatement. Just this past Monday, I said to Wren "thank the Goddess we survived this one (for many of our friends this was not the case). Three more days? We can make it". I must have forgotten to "knock wood".
On Monday night I suffered a heart attack (6 actually), landing me quickly in the hospital. Most of the week was spent in cardiac care, submitting to a series of tests culminating in Heart Surgery on Thursday. A very painful and scary ordeal to say the least. In three weeks time I go back for another round of "Heart Surgery". Mercifully, this technology has become quite the science.
It wasn't our intention to mention this here but due to the misinformation that is already circulating, a brutal back log of email and folks holding us to our history of a 24 update on the Witches of the World pages we felt an explanation was necessary. We do apologize for the delays (all pages, new submissions and corrections are now correct and for the good of all). A few "moved links" at Wren's Nest have also been corrected. For obvious reasons this weeks update will not have the punch or depth that we typically deliver. As always surf to Wren's Nest for DAILY community and Religious News.
Wren and I are very private people by choice. Wren quickly enlisted the magic of some powerful friends to help us through this. We love and we thank you, Don, Daniella and Tara, Baird Stafford, Dana Davis, Velvet Hammer, Mike Nichols, Steve and the folks at WADL, Wade and Dianne, the Jung Tradition, Peg, Tony B, Debbie, Maurice, JD, Terry, NightWing, Sylvan Silvernight, Mark S, Tom Canfield, Diotima, Jerrie, Steve M., Gavin and Janet, Bev and Del. John Machate, J.K. Williams, Angel Winges, Peg. The Healing Magic and love of these beautiful people literally saved my life. I am thankful beyond words.
Most of all I must thank the Great Goddess for the gift of the beautiful, balanced and powerful Wren Walker, she is my soul mate, my lover and partner in life. She is more magical than words can describe. Thanks to Wren and the folks mentioned above, I am healing at a miraculous rate.
As I face this obvious and necessary change of habits and lifestyle, I ask you to bear with us. It is doubtful that I will ever catch up with my email load, but will continue to answer them based on importance and then by date received. YOU are the reason we do this. Always have been and always will be.
Frank Dalton Update: Word today is that Frank IS coming back to the light. We love you Frank and will continue to work our magick until you say stop...
Velvet Hammer News:One of the most moving sentiments I experienced during this trying week was "word from the road" that Velvet Hammer dedicated their set this past Friday night to my quick recovery. Thank YOU Ginger, Lynda Tawney and Nighthawk so much for this... BUT the BIG news is that it is now official that VH will be performing at AutumnMeet (November 4-7th Land of Lakes, Florida) this fall. FINALLY Florida Pagans get to experience what can only be called Velvet Hammer. Click HERE for AutumnMeet 99's current line up.
Great News - Powerful Search/listings for YOUR Site Gossamer Threads Inc. has created a nice little search engine/listing CGI that enables any site with CGI access to do their own Witches of World, Covens Groups, events or the like. This nice little CGI has come on strong over the past year and has been very hot (with version 2.0) for the past few months. Our own WOTW pages have added a category for this type of site. The Pagan community HAS derived much of its power due to its networking flexibility... The more networking we do the stronger we get. Surf to the Gossamer CGI Web site for more info .
NOTE: Today we were made aware of a rumor that WitchVox is being "prodded by AvatarSearch to oppose the creation of a new search engine" - There is simply no truth to this rumor. If you ever hear rumors about our Pagan sisters and brothers the best course is always the direct one... Email them and ask them. (For more info on how to deal with situations like this visit our WitchWars pages).
What YOU thought of Blair Witch Today we put up a large collection of comments (7 pages) on YOUR thoughts on the Blair Witch Movie. These community reviews are all over the place and a very interesting read. Many loved it, Many didn't. Sample:
Dear WitchVox, I just saw "Blair Witch Project" last night and I must say, I cheered for the "Witch" (or force or energy) the whole time. I felt she/he/it was artistic and inventive in using whatever materials were in the woods. On the other hand, the three filmmakers were unimaginative and annoying. It was a relief when they finally stopped screaming, whining and cursing. By the way, I'm not a witch, but love your informative site! Best wishes, Shelley Our current Blair Witch coverage is as follows:
Pre-Review - MOVIE Review - INTERVIEW with the Directors) (all by Peg Aloi)
Thomas Canfield's wonderful piece Barr Witch Project.
7 Community thoughts PAGEs: ONE TWO THREE FOUR FIVE SIX SEVEN
2,700 Links Verified: ALL URLs in our Pagan Links Pages (2,700) were authenticated on 8/7 (We do this monthly). Hence ZERO Broken links. This past week also saw a massive influx of new entries. Click HERE to Surf the Pagan Web.
In closing, allow me to state how fortunate we all are to be a part of this community of love, light and magic. This community has always delivered, we have seen this happen time and time again for two decades and it is our belief that this will continue to strengthen and grow.
Do I believe in Magic? You bet I do.
Humbly in your service.
